About Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)
Paintless dent repair, also known as paintless dent removal, or PDR is a new and better way to repair auto body damage. Amazing repairs can be accomplished on all kinds of car damage. An experienced PDR technician can repair everything from damage caused by supermarket shopping carts and absent minded car passengers opening their doors, to collisions with other cars.
PDR is the fastest, most effective and efficient method for removing everything from simple dings on doors, to damage from minor dents, including dents from falling coconuts. Not only that, but amazingly enough PDR costs less than traditional body shop methods, as there is no drilling, sanding, painting, puttying, or baking necessary.
Not all car repairs repair traditional bodywork, because today's auto paints are very strong and resilient and can often withstand many of the types of damage that happens to vehicles. There is no sense in re-painting a vehicle if the paint has not been scratched or chipped.
Although there are many body shops around, PDR technicians are few and far between. This is because of the amount of time, training, experience, and specialized tools that are necessary to become proficient at the techniques.

Frequently Asked Questions About Paintless Dent Repair:
WHY DOES PDR NOT CRACK THE PAINT?
Today's automotive paints are very flexible and do not easily chip off. They are actually quite rubber like in many respects. There are flex agents added to today's paints as well, that make it possible for PDR to work well.
IS IT POSSIBLE THE DENTS WILL COME BACK OVER TIME?
Unlike traditional body shop repairs, where cracks can appear, and rust can begin to form, damage done before PDR repairs will not come back over time. A great PDR tech will produce great reapairs that will last the lifetime of the vehicle.
DOES PDR WORK ON COCONUT DAMAGE?
Yes! Damage to cars from falling coconuts is very common in the Philippines. Luckily this type of damage usually doesn't scratch or remove any paint, and therefore it is a perfect candidate for PDR.
HOW VISIBLE ARE THE REPAIRS WHEN THEY ARE DONE?
Most of our clients have an astonished look on their face when they come to pick up their car. The repairs look so good that they are usually virtually invisible. Occasionally a repair can only be brought to about 90%-95% percent of perfect or even a little less. If our our technician feel that the finished work will show noticeable signs of damage when it is done, he will tell you that before we begin the work. In most cases the finished work will look just as good as the car did before any damage occurred to most people who look at it.
HOW BIG OF A DENT CAN A PDR TECHNICIAN REPAIR?
It all depends on the condition of the paint on the car, and the sharpness of the creases in the dents. You'd be surprised at the amount and types of damage PDR can repair. The best way to find out if your repairs are a good candidate for DentDok PDR is to come in and have us check it out for you. There is no obligation for this service.
